Into the Dead Released on Android, This is a Zombie Game Worth Playing

into the dead1

A couple of days ago, PikPok games released Into the Dead on Android, as a Zombie survival game that I can’t seem to stop playing. It’s a runner-style game, similar to what you get with Temple Run in that there are objectives, distance goals, and a coin system, but for fans of the zombie genre or shows like The Walking Dead, you’ll probably love this. It’s bloody, has a great soundtrack, and is in a way, somewhat creepy. 

The objective is to survive in a world filled with zombies for as long as you can. You start off in the middle of field just after a helicopter crash only to realize there are hundreds of zombies on the verge of gobbling your brains. You turn and run away, dodge between outreaching zombie arms, jump fences, find safe passages through corn fields and forests, pick up guns and other weapons along the way, all while trying to create the highest score possible. As you stretch your top distance, amass a coin collection, and conquer perks, you’ll unlock new weapons (like a chainsaw or shotgun), new zombie packs, and other bonuses. It’s awesome.

Oh, Into the Dead is also 100% free. There are ads in between games as you transition menus, but never while you are in the middle of a session. It definitely operates under the freemium model as well, tempting you with coin purchases to unlock perks and weapons even faster.

    Very nice game. Agreed.

  • master94

    Looks fun. But who runs towards zombies?

    • EvanTheGamer

      He’s not running towards ‘em, he’s running around ‘em. I think he’s running to get to the nearest Bacon Vendor, but zombies are blocking his path. Zombie’s don’t like bacon, unless it’s brain favored bacon.

      Hell, even survivors in the Zombie Apocalypse needs a good strip of bacon now and again to keep on going!

      • TheOiulkj

        I accept this as the back story.

        • QQpayne

          Only if they add a bacon blowtorch as a weapon in game.

          We concur.

    This game is dreadfully boring. I did not like it at all

    • EvanTheGamer

      You are a boring and sad person then.

      Or…you just don’t like zombie or running games. Or you live a dull existence.

      Yikes…okay, my apologies, that was a bit harsh.

      Moving on…

        What makes you think that he hasnt played the game yet?

        • EvanTheGamer

          Because the Bacon Bandit told me so!

          • terryp

            How deliciously intersting.
            I just played it too and though it became stale after an hour.

        You toss the “troll” tag around to anyone who disagrees with what you think. I think you need to educate yourself with the real meaning of the term.

        • justin

          “Troll” is commonly used by internet users who disagree with another’s statement. There is no merit behind what they say, they throw in “troll” to make their point seem valid. In reality they are the internet trolls.

  • Samuel Serafim

    Very nice game. Very cool.

    Awesome game suggestion, Kellex. I think it’s the best zombie game to date. :-D

    Great little game. Haven’t stopped playing since I downloaded it. College Hoops, hockey and zombie killin’. Solid Saturday afternoon.

      … don’t forget the nachos!

      • EvanTheGamer

        …and brain flavored bacon!

  • Big_EZ

    The controls should be adjustable, I much using the same controls as Kellen but I need wider left and right touch zones and a smaller fire zone.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Agree completely. Would be nice if they let you measure out the areas.

    • http://profiles.google.com/siboldad Aaron Sibold

      Agreed, especially when using PIE controls. Trying to jeer right, and notification bar pops up. Other than that it is a fun game.

    • EvanTheGamer

      I’ve just been using the “Tilt” controls, which have been working wonderfully for me, so far.

    • feztheforeigner

      On my DNA the touch controls are often buggy. It acts like one of the sides is constantly being pressed…

      • r0lct

        I have a similar problem on my Note 2. Sometimes if i “glance” a zombie when holding to the left after contact it keeps running to the left and touching right just keep it straight.

  • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

    Games like this make on screen controls look bad. They are fantastic when done right though.

    • EvanTheGamer

      And Into The Dead’s controls are ABSOLUTELY done right.

      • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

        I’m talking about the AOSP Nav buttons guys..

    • flosserelli

      No problems with the controls here. You get 4 options, what more do you need? You need a dedicated game controller to move left & right? Seriously?

  • EvanTheGamer

    Downloading…installing…playing…soon!

    Sounds like a really cool zombie inspired running game. Can’t wait to play!

    • Austin Warren

      It’s actually pretty fun. Ads aren’t intrusive, game play is nice, and controls are fantastic.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      I think you’ll like it. :)

      • EvanTheGamer

        And right you are. I honestly cannot get enough of zombie games OR running games, and so with these two mixed together and turned into Into The Dead, it makes me happy.

        Great game recommendation!

        Next up: Voxel Invaders(http://bit.ly/ZOVsfk) – Write up a post about this game, please. It’s really fun and awesome, and at $.99, it’s a steal. If you like old-school games like Space Invaders, you’ll really like Voxel Invaders. Everything about it just shines; gameplay, controls, graphics, music, etc.

        • Simon Belmont

          Yeah. Voxel Invaders is great. It was actually a free app on Amazon a week or two ago. I grabbed it then.

          Frankly, it’s worth the 99 cents though. Very well done and retro feeling.

        • r0lct

          Great suggestion.

  • Austin Warren

    I don’t always play games. But when I do, I prefer zombie games.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Ha.

      I don’t always play zombie games. But when I do, I prefer free zombie games. ;)
